If my daughters come through with that subscription that I've been promised for Father's Day, then will I be entered? I'm a man of few wants, so they're actually relieved to finally have that KiteLife subscription as a suggestion.

This, is a kite I think everyone should have in your bag. Short lines opens up areas to fly that aren't normally accessible. Soooo much personality.

I'm waiting for my Father's Day present so I'll be entered! I have, however, prepared a 13' line set in the event I'm the lucky individual 😎

I try to fly mine each week, it's a solid kite. I alternate between it and my indoor quad on T/Th mornings. 

If the person who wins the prize isn't interested in an indoor kite, I'd gladly accept a redirection to my address. B)

Not everyone has a bag full of kites for any given situation or the sewing skills to make their own 😉. Just this past weekend as I was measuring out a set of 50# 120' fly lines I thought how cool it would be to take a break from sleeving and fly a kite in the backyard.

FWIW, I started sewing mine because I couldn't afford the others.. My bag grew pretty much one kite at the time..

I started out spoiled... living at the beach (courtesy of the USAF), working part time at a kite store, and getting a nice employee discount on my kite purchases. There was this weird closed loop when it came to my paycheck 🤔

There have been times in my life I wished I could have similar. Work in a place for a while, get a bunch of employee discounts and ultra-cheap clearance items that still work perfectly, all the scratch-and-dents that only have cosmetic issues, etc.  Also a chance to try out all the different options to get a good feel for them.  Not just kites, but get to use all the cars, get to use all the musical instruments, get to use all the ultra-comfy mattresses, get to try all the audio systems, all the latest and greatest computers, etc.

Another would be being the driver in the commercials where they pop up the warning, "professional driver, closed course, do not attempt".

I got a really pretty bird shaped kite for free. It was a return and I was told if I could get it to fly I could have it. All I had to do was flip the bridle over... my (3 yo at the time) daughter loved that kite.

Hi all!

just got back from a kite clinic late last night, I’ve just validated most of our records but have to run a family errand this morning, then I’m off to another clinic super early tomorrow morning but I will be drawing a winner later this evening. 👍🏻

Thanks all for your patience! ❤️
